In Fiction[]


MP7 Wears the standard Seishou Academy uniform. She has dark hair tied into two short twin tails. She is about the average height of all the elementary sub-machine guns. But she seems to be the shortest of the H&K family.


MP7 has a grudge, or beef with p90, this is due to that they are mutual competitors for the spot of the top PDW (personal defense weapon)

In Real Life[]

(Maschinenpistole 7) is a German personal defence weapon (PDW) designed and manufactured by Heckler & Koch (H&K) and chambered for the 4.6 x 30 mm cartridge. It was designed with the new cartridge to meet NATO requirements published in 1989, as these requirements call for a Personal Defense Weapon (PDW) class firearm, with a greater ability to penetrate body armor than current weapons limited to conventional pistol cartridges. The MP7 went into production in 2001. It is a direct rival to the FN P90, also developed in response to NATO's requirement. The weapon has been revised since its introduction and the latest production variants are the Mp7A1 and MP7A2

Performance & History[]

Looking almost like an oversized pistol, the Heckler & Koch MP7 is a cross between a submachine gun and a carbine that serves around the world in the hands of law enforcement and special operations units.

In the late 1980s, NATO developed requirements for a next-generation personal defense weapon that would be more effective against body armor than current pistol-caliber PDWs. 

While submachine guns based on the .45 ACP or 9mm deliver plenty of stopping power against unarmored targets, the growing availability of capable and affordable body armor meant that something new was needed. 

So German gunmaker Heckler & Koch developed the MP7 to meet these NATO requirements and it has served across the world since entering full production in 2001. 

Some of the most commonly-spotted submachine guns in the hands of law enforcement and other professionals are the MP5 and its successor, the UMP. These guns typify the classic submachine gun, being automatic weapons chambered for pistol cartridges. 

The MP7, however, is chambered for the 4.6x30mm cartridge. The steel core 4.6x30mm was developed specifically to be a lightweight pistol-ish round delivering the penetration more like a rifle cartridge. The smaller, lighter round means that more ammunition can be carried and that it has a minimal recoil even in full-automatic shooting.

When the stock is extended and the forward grip used, it suddenly becomes a mini carbine with performance similar to full-sized guns as long at the range stays below 200 meters or so. This sub machine gun has become the preffered weapon of choice for some Navy S.E.A.L. operators.

Design Details & Availability[]

The MP7, currently being produced as updated models MP7A1 and MP7A2, weighs less than 5 pounds with a loaded magazine and is only 25-inches long with its adjustable stock fully extended. The barrel is 7.1 inches long and the magazine feeds into the pistol grip, creating a compact, easy to handle package.

The action is a gas-operated short stroke piston like that of HK's HK416 rifle and is rated at 950 rounds per minute. A folding forward vertical grip comes standard on the MP7, though this has been replaced on the new MP7A2 model with a standard lower rail which allows the user to easily install any grip if desired. A full-length top rail comes with removable folding sights and permits the mounting of any standard optic or other accessory, and side rails can be easily added for additional mounting options.

This gun is only seen being used by police and military. This is due to that there is no official civilian version of the mp7.(H&K doesn't count the h&k 97 as a civilian version of the mp7)

Some people do make some replicas based off small pistols. That part is a real gray area since it involves making a polymer shell and sticking a pistol inside it. As for military, they can purchase one for around a thousand bucks a piece. With mags costing at around 80 dollars.

The trusty MP7 that has been with me for 6 years in case i have had to eject.

Review From A User (me)[]

In the six years that i've been serving in the 14th fighter squadron, i've never needed to eject or use my PDW. (thank god) Even though i have never needed to use it along with my SERE training, the MP7 is an extremely fun gun at the range. It's precise, the muzzle climb is slim to none, and it's extremely controllable and fun in full auto.(specially when you fire it from the hip and pretend you're a 1910's gangster). Overall, it's a great firearm. The only pet peeve that i have is that since mine is a 1st generation, i can't mount lasers and other "tactical AF" stuff at the bottom. (i really don't need a 10x scope with a heartbeat sensor and canted dot sight and supressor. kek)

Fact about the MP7[]

The MP7 was supposed to be the pick for the Secret Service, but some dude over there decided that the P90 was better. But some agents were issued MP7's that don't show up in any defense contracts. Pretty sure that they're there but i was too lazy too dig through all the 2007 defense contracts.
